Well, I think I have the sailing part down... I just cilck an arrow key and off I go. It's the shooting part that I'm not getting. I don't even realize there's an enemy ship nearby until boom, I've been hit...

Let me vouch for Shadow, she is an awesome captain, and great fun to sail with. Without he skills I would not have gotten through the Boss Battle LOL! If she wants to sail you I'd be more than happy on cannon, that's my forte on the ship.

-Stacey

If that is the case pink there could be many problems, maybe you don't have your compass zoomed out all the way. You can hold down the right mose button and change your point of view while sailing. Also use your roller on your mouse to scroll out so you can see more while sailing. Etc etc..

To shoot the ships on your own, sneak up on them from behind, then sail just to the left (or right), put your sails down, shoot, then drop back, then sail to the opposite side, and shoot again, and drop back. Repeat until they sink or you sink lol. You have go from side to side because your broadside cannons have a recharge period (they are your number 1 and 2 keys on the keyboard, which you have to put a skill point on to activate).

Hope that helps, it is fun. But when you are a low level, it is so much easier if you have a higher level partner.

Advice, when you get skill points don't apply them right away. Save them until you understand what you're doing better.

Good luck!

Pink, if you use the right mouse button and move your mouse while sailing you can see everything around you.



I've been playing Pirates since the beta testing, so feel free to send a pm to ask for help.

Sorry guys, this is all way over my head. I'm really not following what any of you are saying.

I'm not a gamer. VMK has been the only online game I've ever played.

Thanks for the offer Shadow, I may take you up on that when I move over to the new Guild.

Pink, if you give it up no harm done. However I will tell you that before POTCO all I ever played was VMK and Sims 2. I used to think role playing games were dumb and there is a lot of talk on POTCO forums that I do not understand. I can tell you that it is much easier and a vastly different experience playing with a group. My husband says he will be the highest level pirate that has no idea what he's doing, because he is not a gamer either but he has fun playing with the guild members. Anyway, i would advise you to give it a go with a group before quitting altogether. Shadow and I are in a guild together and everyone is more than happy to help without you actually joining the guild if that is what you would prefer.

Anyway just my 2 cents.

-Stacey

Pinkgirlygirl: I'm trying to change my clothes
PinkGirlygirl: Can someone tell me how?
PinkGirlygirl: Anyone?
PinkGirlygirl: Please?

ARG!

I was just telling Aengus, the ONLY interraction I have had so far with another player is this guy that came up to me when I was pleading for help and tried to stab me with his sword. When that didn't work, he pulled out his gun and proceeded to shoot me. Fortunately, you must not be able to kill other players!

But wow, give me a break!! I just want to change my clothes!!!!!!!
Haha! I remember asking people where to get a ship... then i quit.

Lol

Thanks for the encouragement, Stacey

LOL it's not as dangerous as you think with many people, when you are short handed thought it is hard to chat and shoot, chatting and sailing is worse. That's just me though.
